Simone with John – Building the Factory
Simone smirked at John and said, “Ready to make a factory floor?”
John looked around at the space and then said, “I am feeling a bit rushed. We just got here and she wants to start building a factory to make these things.” He waved his hands at the rings and the consoles.
Simone gathered a notebook from the table and handed it to him and said, “Start reading. You and Rachael have been playing buffer to Smith’s merry band of pirates so we managed without you. Millicent told Michael and me to start planning for mass production awhile ago. We planned, but now we need you and Eleanor to build the tools and set up the floor.” John looked wide eyed at the notebook and then back at her with a long face. Simone, being a bit shorter, waved up at him and said, “Hop along. Give it a quick view. Let me know what’s easy, what’s hard and what should be impossible.”
John shook his head and said slowly, “Right…” He turned to leave and then looked over his shoulder and said, “Is this how you would have managed accounts at the old family firm?”
Simone open her mouth in surprise and then frowned and said, “Leave and start your reading or I shall sic Eleanor on you…And she is your size.”
